From the look on Carter’s face when he is required to do a writing assignment, you would think it causes him physical pain. But every once in a while I find something in his backpack that makes me giggle. The following limerick is one such thing. I hope it gives you a good giggle too.
And to make this post even more fun, I challenge you to write a limerick and post it in the comments. I will have Carter judge them and the winner will receive a fabulous set of gel-pens with which to write limericks until his or her heart is content. Two rules. It must be funny, and it must be kid-friendly.
There once was a guy named Pat
He lived with his mouse and cat.
He couldn’t find his mouse.
He looked all over the house.
Then he found it inside the cat.
FYI – If you can work something about body noises or boogers into your limerick, your chances of winning will likely sky-rocket. (The judge is an 11-year-old boy after all.)
